The church interior is covered with beautiful and colorful paintings of the talented Italian painter Aldo Locatelli. Especially the Last Supper and the impressive Via Crucis. There is a replica of the Pieta donated by the Vatican. The doors are bronze and tell the story of Italian immigration with great expressive force!

Nothing really special, but it is always a place to find peace....! People use to fill bottles and bottles of free water to drink.

Very well conserved church. The access is easy because it is located in Caxias downtown. I`d recommend two hours to visit it.

Beautiful church, located between the Teatro San Carlos and San Pelegrino Shopping. Has ceiling paintings made by Aldo Locatelli, Italian painter. Very much worth a visit for history!

It is for sure a great art work to look at. Outside you don't realize how beautiful is inside. But once you got in you see Italian marble and European style inspired work. Worth to stop!

On the outside it doesn´t look like much but once you´ve gone in the artwork on the ceiling and on the walls are breathtaking.

This is without a doubt the best place to visit in Caxias. The church has an amazing architecture and art work which was performed by Aldo Locatelli which is a Italian-Brazilian painter. The art works took ten years to be completed and are considered his greatest works. The church also has a replica of the "The Pietà" sculpture by Michelangelo.... More
